School's Out for Summer
My great-uncle Earl Williams was twelve years old when he brought home this report card to his parents in 1905. Apparently he had a bit of trouble getting back to school after the Christmas holiday, but I suspect his parents were quite pleased with his work that year.
Earl was born 15 March 1892 to Flora McAdams and R.J. Williams. He drowned in 1915. His younger sister, Iva, kept his portrait over her dresser for the rest of her life.
